Very Good
Notes: Kentucky Peanut Butter Stout is tan with a rocky head, full-body, and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. It is lightly sweet with a malty flavor accentuated by strong notes of bourbon, coffee, and peanut butter notes, overall balanced by a subtle hop.

I don't see a date on the bottle.

Appearance: The body is black and it has a short, light khaki head. It has a light but smooth slope of lacing. Not much head retention.

Aroma: It smells like peanut butter.

Taste: There is a note of toasted chocolate up front with hints of coffee. Towards the middle there is a toasty bread flavor with a bit of wheat crust. Towards the back of the mouth there is a bit of bitter coffee and it tapers off to the finish.

Mouthfeel: It feels thin but there is a nice toasty bitterness.

Overall: The label says "AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS" and "CONTAINS PEANUTS." The peanuts make an appearance in the aroma, and there is some toasty character that can be attributed to the flavor. The bourbon and barrel characters are missing. The body is thin enough to make the beer too uninteresting to carry the short list of flavors. I don't really recommend it and I doubt I would drink it again. It has some decent aromas and some good flavors but the lack of barrel, bourbon, and body are disappointing.

This is a 12oz. bottle poured into my Kentucky Bourbon Barrel snifter. This is a very dark stout with a short lived cap of tan foam. The foam was very fizzy until it disappeared. The stout is to dark to see through or observe the carbonation.
The nose is peanut and sweet chocolate, exactly what I expect from a peanut butter stout..
The flavor is peanuts at first, the tasty dry oak flavor to finish, and a little bourbon bite in between.
This has a nice creamy, smooth feel to it. Be careful how quickly you consume this one.
This has a little more ABV and bite than the other peanut butter brews that I have enjoyed, but to me anything with oak and bourbon flavors is a bonus.

Kentucky Peanut Butter Stout pours a dark brown, not much head. Aroma is filled with peanut butter. Flavor creamy, with lots of sweet, fresh, peanut butter. Just a little flat. Overall, its full of flavors, and simple, a peanut butter beer.

On tap.

A - Dark brown pour with with barely any lacing.

S - Some light chocolate malt with the same compliment of peanut butter mixed in.

T - Chocolate malt, some chocolate char, peanut butter, and some alcohol presence. There's a slight Bourbon trace on the back side.

M - Big medium to full bodied.

O - Decent but not sure I would buy again.

For what it is this beer is quite good you get the peanut butter not too dry or bitter chocolates and a smooth mild bourbon wood finish. Is it world class? Not nothing by these guys are but for a 2 dollar find it was quite palatable and delivered on all fronts of expected flavors.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- pours dark brown in color with a one finger light khaki head that quickly reduces to a ring

S- aroma smells just like a peanut butter cup; roasted peanuts and milk chocolate. Undertones of light oak, caramel and vanilla

T- taste follows the nose with a nice notes of roasted peanuts, quickly followed by sweet chocolate. Mid-palate brings out some charred malt and caramel. The finish gives more roasted peanuts and chocolate with a linger of wet oak and barrel juice

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- peanut stouts are usually a hit or miss, but this is a nice representation of the style, with a nice complimenting chocolate note

Lexington Brewing Co. "Kentucky Peanut Butter Stout"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle without production codes or freshness dating
$3.79 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It smells like peanut butter, so there's that. Of course the label reads "natural flavors" but that's fine by me as long as it smells and tastes like it's supposed to. It's a hazy, very dark mahogany brown that appears black in the full glass. The head is short cap of tan but it doesn't hold up very well at all. This is a barrel aged beer so I can give it a little bit of flexibility there as it's seen several transfers and has probably been foamed up three or four times - your foaming properties are limited, so once you've foamed up the beer to a certain extent that's it, it just won't foam anymore. The taste is as you might expect it to be. It's a stout with peanut butter flavoring, not a peanut butter beer that happens to be a stout. It's nice that they didn't over do it, and that it's not sweet. It's just a stout with notes of dark chocolate and some roastiness except that there's some peanut there as well. I'm getting a little bit of the Bourbon barrel character but not as much as you might hope for. It's nicely balanced overall and you barely notice the 8.2% ABV. In the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp. For myself I think this is fine, but I doubt that a lot of people are going to be happy with the intensity of flavor in this barrel aged peanut butter stout.

Look: Poured from a 12 oz bottle from total wine and more. Extremely dark brown pour. Almost black except the bottom shows the slight brownness of the stout.
Smell: Getting notes of malt, chocolate, caramel, slight peanut butter. Slightly rich smell of peanut butter. Almost like goober's peanut butter and jelly except slightly less rich.
Taste: Getting slight notes of peanut butter, not overwhelming like some brands make it but very god. Also getting notes of chocolate, malt, not really noticing the bourbon as much. Only in the end do you get the taste of it.
Feel: light bodied beer - light carbonation. Easy to drink. Very good!
Overall: Not my favorite but not my worst peanut butter stout I've tried. I really appreciate this because it seems like they cut back on the sweetness as the bourbon replaces most of the sweet to it and added flavors of peanut butter and chocolate. The bourbon alone makes this sweet so adding more would be to sweet for someone to drink. Nice!

12 oz bottle. Fresh from the store but no dating found on the bottle. .

Appearance. Near black brown body with a decent off-white head.

The aroma is an unattractive mess. Fortunately, the flavor is much better, with bourbon, peanuts, and dark roasted grains all clearly present. Still, it's not as good as it should be (but fits with my overall impression of this brewer).

12oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Pours almost black; fluffy khaki head that fades leaving okay retention and decent lacing.

The aromas have peanut butter and vanilla leading the way. Some caramel. Malts are there. It smells like cream soda.

The flavors follow the nose. More peanut butter and vanilla leading the way. More caramel along with some hazelnut. Some cocoa and chocolate in the mix. The bourbon is pretty mild and basically goes unnoticed. The flavors also have a cream soda vibe going on. Malts do their thing. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium to full-bodied with active carbonation. It's thin, sharp and crisp.

This is a alright brew. As I've stated a couple times before, this beer reminds me of cream soda. The peanut butter comes through. The bourbon basically goes unnoticed.

12 FL OZ bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with an inch of tan head that leaves a nice coating of lacing.

I get some peanut butter, chocolate, and coffee notes.

The taste is coffee and chocolate with peanut butter supporting the flavor.

Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel

Not Alltech's best effort. I like a lot of their beers and was hoping for the best. It is hard to find a great peanut butter beer. I am often disappointed.
